Abstract

Following a scrutiny of the relationships between sociocultural processes and psychosomatic illness, the authors question the relevance of current concepts of psychosomatic medicine to the contemporary social scene. In order to elaborate new concepts it must draw upon the social sciences because our environment is increasingly man-made. To be relevant, the authors conclude, psychosomatic medicine should integrate ecologic principles with its knowledge of psychic and physical processes.
